Minecraft: Story Mode - Episode 3 - The Last Place You Look
Minecraft: Story Mode's action and laughs both pick up in this much-improved third outing.
The season feels like it is back on track, and this entry delivers on the potential that the premiere episode promised
The best episode in Minecraft Story Mode so far will make your fears about creepy Endermen flare up all over again.
That's the lingering problem with Story Mode in general. There's only a "fun enough" feel to most of it. So while Episode 3 really nails the tension and thrills of coming face-to-face with the Minecraft-staple Enderman, I'm still not convinced this adventure adds up to much more than a mild diversion.
Perhaps it's unfair to compare Minecraft: Story Mode to Telltale's more adult-oriented series. This is built for a particular demographic, and it seems like it's really hitting with that audience. The Last Place You Look is more of the same -- and slightly better, if anything -- so those who have enjoyed the series thus will be pleased to just keep on trucking.
Story Mode continues to be an imaginative and inventive exploration of a Minecraft universe that younger fans in particular ought to enjoy.
Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 3 pulls off a fantastic turnaround for a series that was looking rather lackluster. Issues still persist, and Telltale will have to capitalize on what works well here while moving beyond the things that didn't, but overall it is a massive improvement over what we saw in the first two episodes.
More action packed than the previous episodes, with better character development and progression, The Last Place you Look is the best episode yet.
Just what Telltale hopes to accomplish Minecraft: Story Mode remains in question as "The Last Place You Look" breaks story and characters for the sake of seeing every corner of the Minecraft universe.
Easily the strongest episode of Minecraft: Story Mode yet, The Last Place You Look does wonders to a series that looked like it would be a sinking ship just one episode ago.
